Just make sure the threads are clean on your barrel and in the breach where it screws in on the marker.

if its brand new, send it back.


anything that has threads on it should go together seamlessly unless its tapered (like a brass fitting for example. )

no paintball threads should ever be tapered. there is something wrong with the machining of this marker and it NEEEDS to be warrantied.

that signature is now on every post you've made in the whole of PBnation. We already get enough crap for owning G4's. This just adds to the fire. WTG.

I would say that maybe the breach wasn't machined all the way. call em up get a RMA.

just change your sig man, you cant make it normal unless you get the threads cleaned and re tapped and i doubt anyone close to you has something that will tap cocker threads.

Judging by his post history, I don't think he's trolling. A lot of his posts are in BST. Can't say for sure the G4 is new-new or "new" used, but he probably found the one lemon in the orange grove.

You really can't cross-thread the barrel unless you actually force it. The RMA might not cover it. However if it's truly a manufacturer defect, you can compare it to pictures online. At the same time, the OP should post pictures of what's going on; namely pictures of the threading on the barrel and body.

he stated that it "looks fine" makes me think it was machined improperly.

Try to post a pick with the barrel on and off. And maybe a couple angles of the threads in the marker and the ones on the barrel. Would be interesting to look at. Guessing it's not an aftermarket barrel. That would clear this up quickly
